I went to the mall with my mom last night, to help her choose her new glasses frames. We narrowed the selection down to two choices, and she eventually chose the more stylish option. They were very chic, and she was pretty pleased with her choice, but then we found out that her prescription is too strong for her lenses to work in that particular style. So she had to go with the more sedate pair. I still like them very much; they are a sort of pale tortiseshell that goes well with her complexion and her hair color.
After the long glasses-buying process, we got some dinner at Uno's, and then I completely failed to find a birthday card that I liked enough to buy for Sharif. I get picky about cards.
I'm so glad today is Friday. It's been a very long and very boring week. This weekend promises to be busy, but fun. I've had to stake out some time ahead of time for cleaning, since Sharif has invited some people over for his birthday on Sunday, and I certainly can't allow anyone through the door at the moment. Arg, the lawn is seriously in need of mowing, too. I'm disappointed that the cleaning is probably going to conflict entirely with Pile of Craft, but maybe I'll get lucky and finish really quickly? Doubtful. And that really is the only time available, since we have to be in Falls Church for Saturday evening.
I decided that today was a day for coffee, instead of my usual workday tea. I think this was the right choice.
